I've received a lot of input both on the site and with my friends, and at their request and with some inspiration, I drew another version of epic struggle - this time the kraken is more out of the water, so I'm hoping it'll be a better effect. I also used two new mediums - charcoal mixed with colored pencil. I think it is put to good effect. This battle takes place in a raging sea-storm. Unfortuneately my scanner isn't big enough to get the whole picture, so I did the best I did and cropped it to balance the image. What do you think?
